Unsigned exits

Not sure if this belongs here...

Near Regensburg there are two unsigned Autobahn exits, one on the A 93 right at the Pentling rest area where they use a regular road overpass instead of building a second rest area for the traffic towards Munich.

https://maps.google.de/maps?hl=en&ll...13711&t=h&z=16

I think there's one alike further down towards Munich on the A 9 as well.

And then there's this
https://maps.google.de/maps?hl=en&ll...06856&t=h&z=17
on the A 3 right near the exit Nittendorf. It's also unmarked and there's signs that only maintenence vehicles are allowed to use it but I wonder why the heck they built it in the first place.

Is this just a german phenomenon or are there similar relics elsewhere too ?

There are two in the Netherlands to my knowledge;

A1 Motel Witte Bergen is signed as an exit to a motel, but you can reach other roads as well.

A2 unsigned north of Weert. This exit is entirely unsigned.

Pirkanhovi service area at 3/9/E12/E63 in Lempäälä, Finland:

https://maps.google.fi/?ll=61.253664...03783&t=k&z=16

From the service area, you can drive around the truck parking lot and access a small forest road, serving maybe 20 houses; but this forest road can as well be accessed using "official" exits and local minor roads. Next official exit is only 3 km to south or 4 km to north.

Using this forest road the service area can be accessed with vehicles not allowed on motorways. I don't think that this was the point, though. The road is not signed from the service area, and neither is the service area signed from this road.

Another example, also at 3/E12. This is Linnatuuli service area in Janakkala, as seen from road 130 (the old road 3, which still runs parallel to the motorway and is widely used by local and non-motorway-traffic).

https://maps.google.fi/?ll=60.855178...69.15,,0,16.81

There is actually a parking lot here, at road 130. You are allowed to park there and walk to the service area. Also, there is no physical barrier preventing you from driving to the service area (and then joining the motorway), but as you can see, there is a sign prohibiting that. And even so, you could only access the motorway northbound.

There is a hidden exit on Southbound E07 just North of Huesca. This service area, named "kilometer 3", has been there looooooooong before the motorway, even before the road was classified as part of N-330. It was at kilometerpost 3 of former C-136, hence its name. One can reach the service area by bicycle (Bicycles are forbidden on the motorway) using the bridge that connects it with N-330.

There is an access road to the southbound service area, too. The dirt road to right of the ramps:

The first case in this class in Finland was the arrangement related the Sipoonlahti service area on the road 7/E18. The motorway was built in late 1970's, and the service area was accessible from the motorway only. It raised a big battle because a local road was nearby, but the nearest access to the motorway was several kilometres away.

There was a barrier blocking the road between the local road and the service area, but people found their ways to bypass it. The Police was frustrated to give fines for this crime. Finally, after several years of fighting, the exit was made official, and the blocked road was opened and widened.

The Spanish A-31 (The old N-330 E-7) Alicante Province never had signed exits until 2~3 years ago.

Example:


It was one of the frist Autovías in Spain, build by sections between 1987-1990.

Temporary/service/substitute.

Cognate of English "behalf".

A few of the Turnpikes in the Northeastern US (ie New Jersey Turnpike, Pennsylvania Turnpike, etc) have unsigned exits as well however only maintence and emergency vehicles are allowed to use them.

This is actually not true. They're not cognates. If they were, then they wouldn't look that similar due to phonetic changes that happened, the "half" part of the word in English, for example, is cognate with the German "halb", and the "helf" part of German "Behelf" is cognate with the English "help". "Behelf" and "behalf", however, are unrelated words (the latter is etymologically related to Dutch behalve, although the meanings have become quite different)

There's a service exit as well on the E19/A1 in Belgium that may only be used to access the University Hospital of Antwerp. It's fully signed however.
Ahead sign: https://maps.google.be/?ll=51.161829...77774849793127

Actual exit: https://maps.google.be/?ll=51.158802...91741296403387

The Google Streetview car is showing an ambulance using it + a car following the ambulance. While it seems like a decent amount of traffic is using it, most of them seem to actually use it to get to the hospital.

I live in Latisana and I once entered the former ramps with my bycicle and reached the motorway fence
Last year the former toll plaza was used as runway for the RIS (Italian scientific police) helicopter after a man killed his wife in his home in Latisana.

This is another former motorway interchange in Portogruaro, Veneto
http://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&q=v...-8&sa=N&tab=wl
It was used between 1970 (when A4 opened) and 1974 (when A28 opened). The former ramps are now used as warehouse for construction vehicles and materials by Autovie Venete S.p.A. company.

I would translate "Behelfsausfahrt" to "auxiliary junction".

"Behelfs-" derives from verb "helfen" which meand "to help", but also "to help out", despite the latter can be translated to "aushelfen" in German.
